Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - With just under a month remaining in the season, the inexperienced Baltimore Orioles have not shown any signs of fear of a September playoff race.

On Tuesday, the Orioles shut out the Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight day in a 12-0 win and picked up their fifth victory in their last six games.

Zach Britton (5-1) tossed another stellar outing for the O's. He scattered four hits and a pair of walks with eight strikeouts in seven innings to win his fourth straight start.

Over that span, Britton has pitched to a 0.96 earned run average with 29 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings.

Mark Reynolds blasted a three-run home run, his fifth in his last five games, and knocked in four runs in the second installment of this three-game set.

Carlos Villanueva (7-5) received the loss for the fifth time in his last six decisions. He gave up a season-high six runs on seven hits.
